India trashed Thailand 4-1 before succumbing – somewhat unluckily – to hosts UAE in a 2-0 defeat. India will lock horns with Bahrain at the Sharjah Stadium on Monday with hopes of progressing towards the next stage of the tournament.
Bahrain, on the other hand, were unlucky to not come away with all three points against hosts UAE and lost 1-0 to Thailand. If they win, and convincingly, they too have a chance to progress should results go in their favour in the UAE-Thailand match.
Sunil Chhetri would also be hoping to make this fixture memorable, as he equals former skipper Bhaichung Bhutia’s record for highest appearances for India at 107 each.
For the first time ever, twenty-four nations will compete in the pan-Asian competition instead of the usual sixteen. As such two additional groups have been added and the two best teams from each group and the four best third-placed teams will progress in the tournament.
